A Winery, Family, A Birthday Week.


Hey hey hey!
I hope you had an amazing weekend.

Today marks my husband's birthday week!

He would never go and say that to me or anyone, but since I like to celebrate mine for a week (or a couple weeks, or a month...) I figure he should get that special experience too, right? ;) His birthday is on Sunday and then we leave for Texas next week so to say both of those things have us really excited is an understatement! I mean, Billy has never been to Texas (I've been to San Antonio) and we both have never in our life been to a real rodeo. Thoughts like this have come up: what in the world do you wear? dresses and cowboy boots, what? Will we stand out like mid-western sore thumbs? Are they going to make me eat deer meat? Because if the answer is yes, I'm a little scared. We shall see....

Now for a look into our weekend via instastyle and a tip if you ever visit here! .... (@katiewkrysh)


1. What better way is there to start of a weekend than with Corona's and Chipotle? Those two things might be my favorite "c" words ever. Yum in the tum. 
2. My boys looking cute.
3. I've started mixing silver and gold together. Are you a fan of mixing the two or wearing seperately? Arm candy ft: Target (zebra bangle) and Style Love Living (love bracelet). Spike bracelet was random find on Groop Dealz.
4. MY NEW JUICER! I've told you guys before that I was using my Mom's juicer that she loved, but it is really old and since I use it so often, the blade just couldn't keep up anymore. We decided to buy the Breville Juice Fountain Plus (and Billy was definitely making fun of me for how excited I was about having two speeds!) and got an amazing deal on it. I love love love it. Highly recommend if you want a juicer.
+this is fresh orange juice made of 4 whole oranges. 
(for battling my cold last week which is finally making it's way out of my life...)


On Saturday, Billy's mom and twin sister came in town to visit us and also for their cousin who's birthday party was later that night! We went to Easton to shop all day and decided to eat at the new Cooper's Hawk Winery and Restaurant (which is now in my now top 3 places to eat here!). Oh my goodness...this place is awesome and you must try it if you live here or come visit.

You walk in and there are two bar areas that you're able to do wine tastings. You can do them before you eat, or just do them and then leave to go shopping or after you're done shopping! The location is awesome and the food is wonderful here (get the southwest egg rolls appetizer). Not to mention, it's huge. It's two stories and designed beautifully! They have a wine club you can join that is pretty reasonably priced as well (what do you say babe? ;)) 

Two thumbs up from us.


5. Billy and his momma!
6. We got a pitcher of sangria at Cooper's Hawk...a little sweet, but we liked it. 
7. Heart + colored skinnies + Tory's..comfortable outfit of the day!
8. AHH! They came! The devils cute little Girl Scout cookies! Must.stop.inhaling.
What are your favorites? Don't make me pick one. All of the above are equals in my mind. ;)


On Sunday, we went to breakfast with Billy's family and said goodbye to them and ended the weekend like this...


....on the couch watching the Oscars! I'm not much for award shows (which is weird since I love my fashion), but I love the Oscars. Who wants to invite me next year? Anyone? Anyone?

What did you do this weekend?

*Not pictured: I tried a new juice recipe including a WHOLE JALAPENO...too bad I don't have a pic of me running around the house like a crazy person because that's EXACTLY what it felt like when drinking this juice. WOW! If you don't like a lot of kick in your juices, I would not recommend trying this. ha. 

I linked up with Sami today-go join in on the fun!

You still have time to enter my "Stand Out This Spring" giveaway!

  3. Oh my god Chipotle. I would have an entire city full of children if you could count up the amount of times I've had a food baby from Chipotle. The burrito bowls are seriously some form of heaven on Earth for me. I mean the corn salsa?! To DIE.

  16. Glad to see you liked Cooper's Hawk. We have been talking about checking it out soon. I heard if you signed up for the wine club you could get your tasting for free. Not sure if that was just a special that one time, but if that is the case...sign me up!! Oh and I LOVE my Breville juicer. I think you encouraged me to finally take the plunge and buy one :) Happy Monday!!

  20. Cooper's Hawk is amazing! I was at the one in Chicago last summer. If we hadn't been in Chicago to spend the night before our early flight, I would have purchased several bottles of wine! Delicious food too!

  28. I love juicing! I bet a TINY bit of jalepeno would be good in a bloody mary style juice! Yum! My husband went on a juicing diet a few weeks ago and found out quickly that grapefruit didn't work out so much for him, haha. & I am so sad I didn't get GS cookies this year, but those Thin Mints look amazing!
